2. Super Monaco GP
Platform: Sega MegaDrive/Genesis Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega Released: 1990
The MegaDrive/Genesis version of Super Monaco GP not only successfully replicated the arcade version in its entirety, it also brought along some much need longevity with its World Championship mode.
The ultimate goal when playing in World Championship mode was to win the drivers’ title in your debut season, before going on to defend your crown the following year. Initially you start out driving for minnow Minarae (Minardi), but through challenging other drivers and beating them, you were able to move up the pecking order and eventually end up driving for the Madonna (McLaren) team.
Super Monaco GP will never win any awards for its realism – even I know you can’t take a hairpin at 130mph – but that’s not the point. It was incredibly easy to get into, but bloody difficult to master.
Still the best grand prix racing game bar none.
